RNG = Random Number Generator. Basically, our god in the game. He Who Control the Dispersion and Detonation. You blame RNG if things went wrong, and you praise RNG if things work as planned.

RoF = Rate of Fire. The number that tell how many times your guns can shoot in a minute.

Poi is poi. Used for spamming, usually. But it really means "Like", ask Google if you want to know more.

Because it's abbreviation. Except the poi, it's for spamming.

 

RN Cruisers can be a beast, but if you know how to use it properly. Only Pros can make this line work nicely.

Hmm, glossary thread...

Torpedobeat (Noun): The act of dodging torpedoes

Poi, Nanodesu, Panpakapan: Anime references

AS: Air superiority loadout for carriers

Strike: Strike loadout for carriers

x/x/x: Someone listing out the number of squads he has for carriers, in the order fighters/torpedo bombers/dive bombers

Fun and Engaging (Adjective): Typed into chat if you get detonated

Poiship (Noun): Shiratsuyu-class, or more specifically Yuudachi, but since she is not in the game, the overall class gets this title. Again, an anime reference

Skooma has come up with the only decent answer about poi.   I'm just about to dip some kahluah pig in my poi now.

Poi is a spam phenomenon where animu weebsters spam this in chat, it is unknown where it came from. Although researching it, its either a food from hawaii or a dance.

ROF is the air force of england (no wait, wrong one. and that was a bad joke)

 what is poi?

something that came from kancolle and has spread like a virus in WOWs

why does everyone use that word?

because poi is love, poi is life

Well "poi" is the sound one of the characters make in that warship cartoon featuring school girls with fan service.

I think some players actually think it's cool to type it. I just bundle them in with "players I pay no attention to" and it kinda works.

 

Either that, or whenever I see "poi" I type in "poo" and it triggers some of them into correcting me, repeatedly. The thought of frothing keyboard warriors amuses me.

Whenever anyone starts with the POI thing I just tell them to "Kiss my POI" as it can also mean Point of Interest.

Screenshots of poi spam is a wonderful way to get chat bans handed out.  That's all it's good for

It's a bit hard to kiss something that small.

Well it will get deleted anyway but,

Poi is a word in japanese, it describe "seem like" or "not sure" situation.

The word is the reference to the fact US and Jp have confict claims about DD Yuudachi "Nightmare of Solomon" at Solomon night battle.

Read Naval Legend on the portal for more information.

Poi is our clan name. We have a guy in here named AkaNoPoi[POI].

If you division together, do you have a POI division?

Yes,

 

Not just that, we often sync drop, so there is a POI div in the team, and another POI div in the enemy. Then we all type POI in chat.
